On June 7, Cleveland Clinic South Pointe Hospital hosted its annual “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” community beautification day in Warrensville Heights, Ohio.

Caregivers from the hospital got their hands dirty to provide makeovers to homes in the neighborhood nicknamed, “The Friendly City.”

Approximately 65 volunteers performed light landscaping work, including weeding, pruning, mulching and planting vibrant flowers.

Local companies Infinity Construction and Watson Construction pitched in to supply gardening tools, flowers and mulch.

Warrensville Heights Ward 2 Councilwoman Andrea Mitchell also stopped by to support and thank the hospital volunteers for lending a hand with yard work for residents in their community.

When “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” was launched in 2010, the program supported just three homes. The initiative has since grown to include over 50 homes.
